The 211-room Carlton Hotel in Edinburgh, Scotland, has reopened as the Hilton Edinburgh Carlton, following a $22 million renovation. The property, which was built in 1900, is close to many of the Scottish capital's attractions, including the Royal Mile and St. Giles' Cathedral. The hotel has seven meeting rooms; dining options include the Marco Pierre White Steakhouse and Grill, offering local produce and a classic dining menu, along with signature dishes and drinks. 

"Hilton Edinburgh Carlton offers a chic hotel experience in a prime Edinburgh locale with its sleek design, top-notch amenities, and all the benefits and high-quality service expected from Hilton Hotels & Resorts," said Andreas Lacker, vice president, area brand management, Hilton Worldwide. "We are delighted to be extending our footprint in Scotland and to welcome guests from all over the world, especially with the Edinburgh Fringe Festival taking place this month, attracting thousands of visitors."
